What To Expect in Preparation for the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse?

What To Expect in Preparation for the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse?

Hey everyone, welcome back to my channel! Today, I have an exciting announcement – a historic total solar eclipse is happening on April 8th! It's going to be an incredible celestial event that you won't want to miss. In this video, we'll dive into the essential topic of choosing the right solar eclipse glasses so you can safely observe this remarkable phenomenon.

Can sunglasses be used to view the solar eclipse?

First, we need to understand that sunglasses do not block sunlight during a solar eclipse. No matter how expensive or dark they are, they cannot protect your glasses.

So NASN has a warning for people who want to get a closer look at April 8: Please be sure to wear eclipse glasses to protect our eyes when viewing the eclipse!

This could end up being one of the most-watched solar eclipses ever, with more than 31 million people living in the path of the eclipse.

What happens if you don't protect your eyes during total solar eclipse?

OK, maybe you haven’t realized it before this video, but not using safe solar eclipse glasses will bring us great harm.

Dr. Miller said: "What starts out is similar to a severe sunburn on the inside of your glasses, so when these light rays come in, they actually focus on the back of the glasses, called the macula, and when really intense light comes through, these cells When injured, there are no pain receptors in your eye, so you won't feel the burn, but you will see the central part of your vision turn gray and distorted as you burn the macular area. Even though this isn't the worst case scenario, it could even cause the area to turn completely black in the center.


How to buy compliant solar eclipse glasses?

In order to keep my eyes safe before the eclipse and, at the same time, to be able to view the eclipse more safely, I purchased a pair of certified eclipse glasses from Amazon, so let's unbox them and see what makes them the best choice for viewing the eclipse.

First and foremost, when choosing eclipse glasses, it's crucial to make sure they meet the ISO 12312-2 international standard. This certification guarantees that the glasses provide enough protection from harmful solar radiation to keep our eyes safe during the eclipse.

Now, let's talk about solar eclipse glasses. I recently purchased the Keyaluo Solar Eclipse Glasses, and I'm really impressed with what they offer. In a single box, you get three pairs of glasses, and guess what? I only spent $23.99, which is just $8 per pair. That's incredibly economical, making it perfect for the whole family to use.

One of the standout features of these glasses is their user-friendly design. The instructions and warnings are clear and easy to understand, ensuring a safe and enjoyable viewing experience. They're comfortable to wear, allowing you to view the eclipse directly without any worries about eye strain or damage.

Of course, better than cardboard framed glasses, they fit well, the lenses are foil material, but they have to be better than paper as well as sturdier than cardboard framed glasses, and I'm sure the frames will hold together, at least during the eclipse. I think $8 was a good investment for my eyesight, and to top it off, I received my package the next day, amazing delivery time.

Lastly, I'll put the link to my purchase in the description of the video if you need it.
